1. Make sure the color cartridges are installed correctly. 2. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. There should be a date on the sticker on them. 3. Make sure that the cartridges are clean. Sometimes the ink can build up on the cartridges and stop ink from coming out. 4. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes. Find your printer and right click, then press Printing Preferences. In the options there make sure that color is selected.

I have similar problem. Print head won't print, then I clean with alcohol, and get rid of old ink inside. But then head seems to just shut down. I have several print heads and printers that have plenty of ink, but head won't work. I refuse to think the print head will break so easily. I used my BJC 85 for YEARS with no problem whatsoever, and suddenly, since last winter, I have 4 printers that have stopped printing.
I usually end up just buying another used printer on ebay until that one stops printing.
I have not solved the problem. I just changed to a different printer. I had a bj50 printer and it use to do this and would change the printhead but they are expense and I have 3 different ones so believe it is something else that is wrong with this one.
